Which math should I take in college?

If you are a math major or statistics major, the majority of your courses will be laid out for you with the exception of major electives, in which you'll have a variety of math courses to choose from. Take all the statistics and probability courses you can if you are a statistics major. 

If you are going into a science based field of study or any type of engineering major, take calculus your freshman year.  Make sure you take a course in complex variables, which has engineering applications.

If you are not going into a math, science, statistics, or engineering based field,  your college may offer college algebra. If not, take an introductory statistics course. You may only be required to take a year's worth of math.

If you are in a business related field, take math that relates to finance or accounting principles.
